About

PEACEFULLY NESTLED IN THE HEART OF IT ALL Carthage’s tranquil campus is an arboretum lush with stately oaks, a winding river, and breathtaking lake views. Yet just a free trolley ride away, you’ll find art galleries, cafes, shopping, and more in Kenosha, Wisconsin’s fourth-largest city. Want even more activity? Milwaukee is 45 minutes north, and Chicago is an hour south. Both cities have great food, music, art, and pro sports scenes. 5 Reasons to Love Our Location No. 1: The Lake Our Great Lake is a built-in stress-reliever, research lab, and artist’s muse. “My favorite spot on campus would have to be the outdoor classroom,” says student Haley Aichholzer ’21. “There is something so beautiful and unique about learning outside and having Lake Michigan only a few feet away from you.” No. 2: Kenosha Kenosha is Wisconsin’s fourth-largest city, home to a vibrant arts scene, live music, outdoor festivals, shopping centers, farmers markets, museums, and more. Downtown Kenosha is located minutes from campus. Students can use historic streetcars and a robust city bus system to get around town. A downtown trolley and city bus both stop on campus multiple times a day. No. 3: Chicago Ready for a bigger scene? Jump on the Metra (the train station is a quick car, bus, or Uber ride from campus), and soon you’ll be in the middle of everything Chicago has to offer — from shopping on the Mag-Mile to world-class museums like the famed Shedd Aquarium and Art Institute of Chicago to your choice of MLB, NBA, NFL, and NHL games. No. 4: Milwaukee Take in a Milwaukee Bucks or Milwaukee Brewers game, try a new restaurant, or visit a museum — there are more than 15 in downtown Milwaukee alone. Milwaukee is also home to the world-famous Summerfest music festival along with concert venues that draw big-name musicians and comedians year-round. No. 5: Jobs and Internship Opportunities Thanks to our location in the thriving Milwaukee-Chicago corridor, Carthage students can pick from a long list of local and regional employers — north, south, and right here in our own backyard. Carthage’s exclusive Aspire Program connect students with such companies as Abbott Laboratories, Accenture Consulting, Jockey International, SC Johnson, Kraft Foods, and Snap-on Incorporated. Gain real-world experience while you’re still in school through internships, and find permanent employment in the endless opportunities nearby.

What housing options are available for first year Carthage College students?
Carthage College
All of the residence halls are open to first year students. That said, returners sign up for housing first, so most years The Oaks and The Tower fill before first year students sign up for housing. On a related note, first year students are typically housed with other first year students. Learn more about Carthage housing and residence life: https://www.carthage.edu/residence-life/
